"Butterfly", about to become intimate with the water.
Ake made some changes, including closed transom and twin rudders. These were later replaced with a single rudder as shown on the plans.

"Butterfly" on Lake Vätten in Sweden. Ake built a wooden mast for her and reduced the length by 1m to the maximum that he could fit inside his garage.

Our feedback is that she handles well, with good acceleration. Her performance has her sailing with the 30 footers.
